Night at the Museum

October 2 was the International Gallery Night – art-walk in which museums and galleries are open and free until 3am. Here are some views from Plovdiv’s Night at the Museum. The man above is in full gear of a rebel from the time of the end of 19 century when Bulgarian fought for their Independence from Turkey. Below is the facade of the museum I shot during the day.
The Bulgarian National Revival Exposition of the Museum of History, Plovdiv, is arranged in the Georgiadi House owned by Georgi Kendindenoglou, a wealthy Bulgarian tradesman and dealer of frieze coming from an old Plovdiv family for which there were evidences as early as the 17th century. Soon after he built his house, Georgi Kendindenoglou presented it as a portion for the marriage of his daughter Elena with the Greek trader from Thessaloniki Dimitar Georgiadi. The house was erected in 1846 by the eminent Bulgarian master-builder Hadzhi Georgi. It is one of the most beautiful examples of the widely spread in the 19th century a Plovdiv type of symmetric house.

    It is interesting to see different cultures as you are in an area of many. The ‘freedom fighter’ looks proud with the red flag. It is interesting how Bulgaria seemed to be a target of outside forces, like Turkey and the USSR. This red museum is beautiful on the outside, but with the treasure of your history. Nice!

    The architecture is fabulous. Fascinating weaponry. As Ralph wrote, „interesting how Bulgaria seemed to be a target of outside forces, like Turkey and the USSR. “ (reminds me of Polish history)

    I always learn so much from your posts. I especially like the costumes and the ancient theater photos. Rocking the night with Atlas looks like fun, too.
